Hybrid Scrappers or just fun stuff here is inspiration for you!

Hi this is Lissa Marie, here to do my first post for “Just Jaimee“!  How exciting!  I thought, “Oh what to do, what to do, as I had many things come to mind, at the last-minute I decided to go with this journal book for my project life, organization.  Perfect timing at the beginning of the year!

I found a page template on Pinterest from last year, but I don’t know the blog I found it at, during my desperate search I didn’t find anything like I wanted for my new journal this year.  So I got busy in PS and made one for my book pages, I sure wished I could share with you but I don’t have one for every week.  I just typed in the week and printed on 8.5 x 14 paper, double sided.  The important part is the fun embellishments that I made for the book.  I love making books with scrap mat board, and binding them with the Cinch machine.  I then printed out the cover with Jaimee’s designs on heavy card stock, and printed out some embellishments on glossy sticker paper to decorate it, leaving tabs f
or quick stops and notes.

I wished I could say I used my Silhouette Cameo, but I don’t have the settings down for this kind of sticker paper and ended up hand cutting them out.  No biggy because many people don’t have a cameo and would have to do that anyway.

I hope you find this project useful and fun for your own kind of journals.  I have made many with just lines and decorated them with digital elements!  It is fun, now I have to stick to the plan on USING it!  Jaimee gives me NO excuse NOT to scrapbook!  I am so excited to be on her team, looking forward to bringing you alot of inspiration!

Just a birthday card

I thought I would show you the birthday card I made for a co-worker coming up this week.  I drew this on my Samsung Note tablet in PS Touch, then I saved it as a PNG, sent it to myself, uploaded it into the Silhouette software for a print and cut.  After cutting out the elements, added some bling.   Using twine for the balloon string.   I thought it was kinda cute!

I used a cute paper out of DCWV for a background prop.  I hope you enjoy this quick cute idea!

OMG, I don’t know how I am ever going to live the iNSD!

So many freebies and give-aways for digitals everywhere!

Digi Kit, Printables, Papers, Elements, Pocket Cards all on Facebook blog trains, Digital Scrappin’ Freebie Facebook group doesn’t help me stay away from it all, I am finding, games, speed scraps, you name it, it’s everywhere!  Where in the world have I been??

My favorites are the Sweet Shoppe Designs,  Lily Pad, Pixels and Company, The Digi Chick and so many more!

They have something for everyone, and Pinterest is always a killer for free fonts and Pocket Journaling cards any kind of printable you want for anyone who knows how to print an image even without an image editor!

I can say that the mourning over my last failed hard-drive is starting to soothe over!  Kids are gone and I have gone wild on the net!  Digital Pocket Page Protector, Printables, Full Kits, even a little scrappin’ in but I didn’t even use a kit!  Plus I taught myself  how to make digital pocket page protectors on my own so now I have every layout at my finger tips!

There has been some great kits out there, some I almost bought Just Jamie’s May Story Book Collection it’s such a killer deal!  But I held back and collected my favorite newly discovered sites that I downloaded from, subscribed and I can pace myself.  That’s tough to do when you know what great sales there are right now.  My favorite designer of all is having the biggest freebie I have seen on the net, (yes I am partial to her because I blog for her too… I feel like one amazingly lucky girl!)  So I have to share with you her amazing work and her give-away too.  Not just because I blog for her either!  LoL

This opportunity to see her work and fall in love.  If you like vintage, unique, fun, neat things this is the place to go!
